Supporting and bringing together linguistics communication projects.
The International Conference on Linguistics Communication (#LingComm21) brings together lingcommers from a variety of backgrounds, including linguists who have developed skills in communicating with public audiences and communicators who have developed a “beat” related to language. April 19-22, 2021, online.
LingFest is a program of online linguistics events aimed at a general audience, taking place between Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, May 2, 2021. Just as a fringe festival compiles a list of independently-organized events on a particular theme, LingFest is an excuse for linguistics communicators to organize an online event, a way for fans to meet fellow linguistics enthusiasts (use #lingfest), and a handy way to find out about more lingcommers who you might want to start following!
Have a great idea for a linguistics communication project, but need a bit of money to get it off the ground? Looking to support emerging lingcomm projects? The LingComm Grants in 2020 were four $500 grants for communicating linguistics to broader audiences. Find out more about the grants and check out our four grantee projects.
